Since I haven't developed my films from our Vietnam trip, I'm going to start my SE Asian backpacking series of posts with Siem Reap. Siem Reap is a province in the northwestern part of Cambodia. We traveled for more than 10 hours via a limousine bus from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I think there was a budget flight but we chose to rough it up a little bit and endure the long ride. Good thing the bus wasn't full so I got to have the two-seater by myself. It was all worth it.
We stayed in a nice area where everything is a walking distance.
The following morning, we decided to wonder around town. There were a lot of street stalls selling fruit shakes and this one uses yogurt instead of milk for only a dollar. BTW, US dollar is the main currency used here.
Speaking of quaint shops. We saw this little shop in an alley selling interesting stuff from local artists.
If you're tired from walking, street massage is offered here.
Or if you're adventurous, you might wanna try this option.
The Siem Reap river
The Levenson Falls hahaha
Here's my roommate, Ric.

Outside Angkor Wat.
Angkor Wat's entrance.
Palm trees can be found anywhere in Cambodia.
So now, we're inside an Angkor temple. We only visited three temples coz they all look the same...
This wall, i think, shows the ancient history of this place.
Adorable white kids
the most adorable of them all.
I still have one film roll for Siem Reap that needs developing. I hope that roll has interesting stuff I could post. :)
